No, you aren't going to get vibration from anti-seize on the face, it's a liquid.

And, the fact that it won't last forever (true!) is not a good reason not to use it! I wouldn't leave spacers on for more than 3-6 months depending on how rainy/humid/salty it is where you live. I always install aluminum spacers with anti seize.
Anti-seize, at least the one I use, becomes a gel-like substance once it heats up. IIRC TMS also recommends not applying it to the face for the same reason.

I don't think Malek was saying not to use it on the hub, I think he was just agreeing that you can still have problems even when using it.
